Paper Abstract

The paper outlines several unique properties of C60 (environmental, electronic, and structural), compared to standard semiconductors such as Si and GaAs, that render it a most promising material for the fabrication of high-efficiency photovoltaic cells. Details are presented of an experimental Schottky barrier solar cell we have constructed using a single crystal of C60. Preliminary results of our experimental studies of the optical properties of crystalline and amorphous C60 films are discussed.
